Yom Ha’atzmaute: Israel Independence Day Slide Show
with Rabbi David Zaslow
Wed. eve April 18 at 7:30 PM at the Havurah
Last year Rabbi David spent a week in Poland that culminated in an extraordinary event where he marched with thousands of high school students from around the world. They marched from Auchwitz to Berkinau to commemorate Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Memorial Day. They flew to Israel and a week later celebrated Israeli Independence Day, Yom Ha’atzmaute.
Rabbi David writes, “I never really got the deep connection between the suffering of our people and the independence of our people in our ancient homeland of Israel until I went on the March of the Living trip." Both sacred days are purposely placed a week apart from each order to teach us something very deep about finding purpose in our sorrow. Come join me as I share with you my slide presentation from this amazing trip.”
